Day four – our last day of activities, dun, dun, dun!
Bacon rolls this time for breakfast, as usual delicious.
First activity: high ropes course = awesome. We had to start on a lower course and the move on to the high one. We had to climb up a beam, get on to a very small platform, link arms with three other people and lean outwards. Scary.
Second activity: canoeing. A good activity and not supposed to be wet but still fun. It was Robbie, Andrew and me in a boat. At the end we got bored and just went in for a swim. Mistake. Really, really, really cold.
Today our evening activity is the disco. That comes right after this.
Today I woke up at the same time and by the same person, talking to Kyle. Our first activity was the high ropes course. It was AWESOME! Me, Robbie, Conal and Mirran were in a team and we all had to hold hands and lean back.
Then we had a shot of a really high course. Our second activity was canoeing. It was AWESOME! Evie and Mirran capsized. It was so funny! Then we were allowed to jump in the water. IT WAS FREEZING! (The coldest water I’ve EVER BEEN IN!) As 8.00 it’s the disco. I am NOT looking forward to this.
Last night we had a quiz for around the house. I went with Martha and Mirran and two people from another school. Their names were Emily and Melanie. We came joint second! In the morning we went gorge walking. You jump in to really deep puddles. There were about 2 ft deep! It had lots of climbing and getting wet. In the afternoon we did the high ropes course. I went on the trapeze with Brigid.
Then I went on another platform with Martha, Emily and Brigid. On this platform we all had to lean out. We had to trust each other a lot.
It was soooo tight and wobbly. It was soooooooooo scary.
Today was out last day and we went caving which was very scary! And we did the ropes course which was my favourite activity of the week. I went so high! But it was so scary. We are having the disco tonight and Miss McNicoll is doing our hair. For tea we had spaghetti bolognaise and I really enjoyed it because it’s one of my favourite meals!
Today we did the gorge walk. You started at a church then we walked up the gorge – then you slid back down the gorge. But the water was freezing. In the afternoon we did the ropes course. It was so scary. It was so scary. It was so high, me Connor, Dan and Mr Devereux fell off. See you tomorrow.
Today we did caving. It looked really scary and I panicked and turned back but it was actually reallay easy! I slipped through ‘the slot’ which is a small slot. I felt amazing after doing all the caves.
Then we idd high ropes course. It was so good. I climbed a 50 ft – 60 ft. trapeze. Then Saorise came up too. It was mega scary. In the end we missed the bar and had to be lowered down. After that I did the catwalk (a long plank), the postman’s walk (two ropes) and the vines (rope hoops dangling from a rope and a long metal bar to walk on). I managed all of them but they were scary (x100). I belayed Jemma on catwalk, postman’s walk, vines. It was very fun but also scary.
For breakfast we had a bacon sandwich (it was all right).
First activity was gorge walking. Gorge walking was amazing. We had to fit through a hole called the keyhole. We also jumped into massive puddles and slid down water slides.
The next activity was the rope course (the best yet). It was amazing. We jumped from a 60 ft drop onto a trapeze (obviously a harness).
We also went up this sloping log thing. It leant up to ropes to balance on.
